Notes:
Moved to the US in 1882 (B2) or 1883 (CEN1900–1920). A supposedly 5-year old Diedrich appears on the passenger ship list with his parents in 1883. He became known as Ditrich H., David Henry, Dave, or D. H. Bredthauer. He spent his first married years in Vinton Township, Valley County and near Elyria Nebraska. In 1904 he owned and lived on the south half of section 13 and the northeast quarter of section 24 in Independent Township in Valley County. In 1907 he was elected treasurer of Elyria Township. In 1908 they moved to Maiden Valley and in 1909 went to live in Mira Valley. They bought the land in section 25 of Enterprise Township that had formerly belonged to Mary Brown of the Pennsylvania Colony era. He was naturalized in 1915. In 1917 they moved to a farm south of North Loup Nebraska. In 1926 he owned the north half of the south half of section 25 and 320 acres in section 23, Enterprise Township, 400 acres in sections 19 and 30 in North Loup Township, and 40 acres three fourths of a mile south of North Loup, all in Valley County. Dave was treasurer for District 33 Sunny Side School, and in 1922 a director of the Farmers Grain and Supply Company. In 1930 Dave retired from farming and cattle-feeding operations for a while and did some traveling, including visiting the Worlds Fair in New York City. They settled in Grand Island Nebraska and after feeding cattle for some time north of town, they made their final home at 710 West 2nd where now is a Pump & Pantry (formerly Standard Oil) station. He died of heart trouble.

CEN1900 gives his birthdate as JUN 1869, and immigration year as 1883.
